Re: The new tunes.

My boy then took out some demos of an up and coming group called "Paperstreet
Saints" (watch out for these guys) that he wanted me to hear. (His drum
instructor is the main dude in this band and the drummer that was in Sponge back
when they had a hit in the 90's -he made the demos in their entirety.) It
sounded like what could be on the local rock station right now and it sounded
awesome but not *too* heavy like the Godsmack type stuff that I am so sick of.
Middle of the road Rock but with great beefy tone and the drumming was top
notch. I bet you will hear from this band. I told Jonny to get all the drum
lessons he can while he still can.

Do you mean that this style is considered "cutting edge?" I do think that Pete and Roger (as usual) are aware of the latest thing, and I think maybe this is it. Remember the Five for Fighting guy who sang "Superman" at CFNY? I've heard some other indications of it, too. The guy bands have their own version of the jazz singing/Nora Jones style. Isn't that curious?

It seems that Pete and Roger made sure that the *words* were at the forefront
in these two songs. The music supports the words, but if you don't get the
message, it will just be some nice music and nothing special.

Messages are Pete's thing, of course. Even songs with minimal structure have a message.

I would like them to do a "hit" type of song or two for the album to sell, a
la Pinball Wizard, just to keep them making albums filled with songs like
these two.

Right. We like to have that hit. ;)
